Season 7

Episode 1

(Why didn't you talk back)

Jacob decided not to pressure himself so much and put the paper aside for later. 'As long as I can get the chip out of my brain, I'm sure to remember everything again!' Determined to return to his old self, Jacob was finally taking a step towards the right direction.    

He feared losing himself to insanity if he insisted on cramming his brain with all those memories and information.    Jacob did not want to hurt Emily anymore.    

He might not love Emily or have romantic feelings for her but she was still the mother of his child. 'I don't think I would have allowed her to have my baby if I did not love her.   

 For the sake of Beryl, I will make sure that Emily will have a wealthy life forever, ' Jacob swore to himself.  

However, Jacob had not yet disclosed any of this to her since he wanted to make it up to her with actual deeds instead of just words. 'As for an apology...    

I don't think a simple word can quantify my remorse. So from now on, I'll be sure to give her anything she wants as an apology for my actions!'    

Jacob lovingly rubbed her back and said, "Let's go inside, okay? It's starting to get chilly out here."    

Emily, however, did not greet Jacob with the same affection. Instead, she pushed him away violently as if Jacob was her sworn enemy.    

"You are not Jacob! Who on earth are you? How dare you pretend to be him! Guards! Guards!" Emily cried for help.  

  "If I'm not Jacob, then who am I?" Jacob did not feel angry but continued resignedly with smile, "So, what's this now? You must be finding it hard to believe me because for once I'm actually treating you nicely, unlike how I've treated you for some time now, right?"  

Emily became more nervous and she asked vigilantly, "So, why do you want to treat me nicely now?" Jacob's unpredictable behavior made Emily feel doubtful and terrified as if something bad was bound to happen any minute.   

 It was true. Emily had grown so accustomed to his ill-treatment that she assumed Jacob must have a hidden agenda for behaving the way he did.    

Having seen Emily's reluctance to trust him, Jacob could not help feeling disappointed and he pressed his lips into a thin line.   

 Jacob knew that it was all his fault and Emily was justified to doubt him.    

All the while, Emily had a vigilant look on her face, as if she were ready to defend herself when the time came.    

Jacob felt disappointed, put to shame by his own deeds, but his flawless facade masked his true feelings and he spoke arrogantly, "I will do whatever my heart desires. If I punish you, you need to bite down and accept it. And if I treat you well, you still need to accept it at face value. You have no right to question my reasons!"  

The familiar tone made Emily feel relieved as she had already cast aside all hopes of Jacob regaining his memories without treatment. The only thing Emily wished for right now was for Jacob's condition to stay stabilized.    

Emily would rather have him be temperamental than watch him become a complete lunatic!    

"Go inside now!" Jacob ordered. He held Emily in his arms and brought her back inside at once.    

Suddenly, Beryl ran out of her room shouting cheerfully. "Daddy! Mommy!"   

 Fearing that Beryl would end up accidentally hurting Emily, who was still in poor health, he knelt down in front of Emily to pick Beryl up into his arms. 

"What's wrong, darling?"  

Beryl winked at Jacob and said, "Daddy! I read in the newspaper that you have lost your job. So are we going to be paupers soon?"    

Jacob tittered hearing what Beryl said and answered, "Rest assured please. I will never let you become paupers."    

In truth, Jacob resigned from the Gu Consortium on purpose. It was all just an elaborate ruse to keep Jennifer and Mr. Gu from playing tricks on him.    

Jacob was just making the best out of a bad bargain. Something more exciting would come sooner or later. He was certain of it. Therefore, Jacob just left them to show off for several days.   

 Emily immediately understood what Jacob had meant. She decided not to pester him too much since she knew Jacob had a plan for everything. Besides, nothing could ever daunt a man of his excellence.   

 Having no other commitments to attend to, Jacob spent the following days at home with Beryl and Emily. This allowed for their bond between each other to grow stronger than before.  

Emily wondered whether she should just tell Jacob everything, but she was afraid of accidentally provoking his murderous rage like she did the last time. In light of the good time they were spending with each other, she decided to keep everything hidden inside her mind.    

There were many people on the outside who were now laughing at Jacob. But Jacob didn't give them the time of day and just enjoyed his days living a normal, hassle-free life.    

On the other hand, Jennifer was quite happy with what she had acquired and she even called Jacob to please him in an unctuous way.    

"Jacob, if you still want to come back to the Gu Consortium, I will help you. Besides, we've known each other for so many years. I will be happy to help you if you just ask,"  said Jennifer.    

However, the person on the other end of the line wasn't Jacob, but Emily.  

"Jacob doesn't need your charity,"  she answered in a cold voice.    

Jennifer's tone became bitter with resentment when she realized she was talking to Emily. "Well, well, well, it's you, Emily. Now that Jacob is no longer the CEO of Gu Consortium, are you sure that you still want to be with him?" she asked.    

Emily was quite calm as if nothing Jennifer said could make her feel angry. 

"Thank you for your concern, but my private life is none of your business."    

"Who told you that it was none of my business? As long as it's about you and Jacob, it's all my business!" Jennifer had lost her temper.   

 "Did you call this number just to spew bullshit?" Emily asked impatiently.    

Jennifer felt frustrated by Emily's indifference. 'How can you still be so arrogant? Why do you sound so calm even after Jacob had lost everything?'  

"Emily! Don't you care about Jacob? Perhaps you don't know him as well as you think you do!" Jennifer was deliberately provoking her.   

 Emily paused for a second as if to hang up the phone, but she took the bait. "What on earth are you trying to say?"  

  Jennifer chuckled as if she had regained the advantage. With an air of arrogance, she said, "Jacob, the famous CEO of Gu Consortium, was once a man of great power and influence. But now, he is just another nobody. I wouldn't be surprised if he fell into despair and depression, right? So, If you really care about him, then..."   

 "Then what?" Emily interrupted.    

"If you really care about him, you should go back to D country with your little bastard and never come back here again! Don't interfere with our lives! Only then I will consider giving back his old position in the company. Besides, you don't want him to become a pauper, right? Moreover, Jacob had a great contribution in making Gu Consortium the lucrative company that it is today. 

It's the only thing he has left from his parents. Do you really believe that Jacob would willingly give up on his parents' legacy?"  

Emily couldn't deny that Jennifer had some good points, and she stood there for a while in silence, with the phone in her hand.  

  "Hey, you. Did you hear me?" Jennifer derived great pleasure from Emily's misfortune.   

 Emily's nose twitched in anger, and she was about to say something when suddenly someone took the phone away from her hand.    

Benumbed, she stared at the man in awe, having failed to notice that he had been standing there for a while. When Jacob took over, all he had to give Jennifer was a venomous outburst of anger.    

"Jennifer, you seem to have a lot of spare time in your hands. But if I were you, I would be worried about that old man's poor health, because once he is dead, you will get nothing left in the company! 

How dare you threaten my woman in my own house? Never mind. Soon, you will be on your knees begging for my forgiveness."  

Jacob hung up on Jennifer's face as soon as he finished talking. 

Meanwhilee, Jennifer was so enraged by Jacob's arrogance that she ended up breaking the tea cup she was carrying in her hand the whole time. Emily stared at 

Jacob from the side, amazed by his selflessness. However, Jacob responded with a disappointed expression on his face.  

"She's a bitch, you know that very well, why didn't you talk back?"
